According to the latest reports from Tuttosport, there is a possibility that Antonio Conte could decide to give Radja Nainggolan some game time during today’s pre-season friendly match against Lugano.

The Italian tactician is short of options in attacking areas as he awaits reinforcements while some players have yet to return from their holidays. Indeed, the Belgian midfielder played a part in the Nerazzurri’s tactical drills during training yesterday afternoon and there is a chance he could be given time to impress.

The former Roma and Cagliari man has already rejected an offer from Galatasaray as well as approaches from Chinese Super League sides Dalian Yifang and Jiangsu Suning. It remains to be seen who else might step forward with a proposal before the transfer window closes. There is not quite the same urgency to find a potential suitor as Ninja’s situation is very different to that of outcast Mauro Icardi.
